Measuring Skill Over Technology
Many programs have tried to outwit PowerPoint in terms of technology and skill. These programs, however, still lack several characteristics that PowerPoint has possessed from the start. Here's why PowerPoint replacements won't entirely work for designers and businesses alike.

Not everyone is tied to the Microsoft Office suite these days, as more free cloud-based solutions are entering the market. You might be used to creating presentations in PowerPoint, but did you know Google offers Slides - a free presentation platform? Today we’re going to review this simple workaround to add audio to your next Google Slides presentation.

By default, Slides does not include support for audio files, but they can accommodate tracks from online audio services like Spotify or Soundcloud, or even from a YouTube video with this workaround. Let’s get started.


Add Audio with a Link


  1. From inside your Slides presentation select Insert > Text Box (or select the Text Box button on the toolbar) and insert a text box anywhere on the slide. (Be sure to have the copied link from the audio site you prefer).

  2. Paste some text into your text box (this will be visible in your presentation).Slides01.PNG
  3. Select the text box, from the toolbar select Add Link and paste in your audio link. The text box is now an active link.

  4. Move your text box to your desired location on your slide. You can also resize it to ‘hide’ it on the slide here.
  5. To play the audio in your presentation, head into presentation mode by selecting View > Present. While in your presentation, you can now click the link to play the audio track, it will open in a new browser tab, playing until you close it.

The ability to automatically add page numbers to a layout is one of the many easy, convenient features InDesign has to offer. There are many reasons why you would want to automatically generate page numbers in your next project, so whether it’s a magazine, a booklet, or individually numbered items, the simple steps here can help.
 
  1. Create a new InDesign document, with your margins and dimensions. Page numbers are not limited by dimension and can be applied to a document of any size.
  2. Navigate to the Pages panel. If you cannot view this, you can make it visible through the Window dropdown. Click Window > Pages to display it. InDesignPageNumbers-02.PNG
  3. In the Pages panel you will see the top section contains the A-Master; this is where you will be creating your page numbers. Any changes made to the A-Master will apply to all pages that contain that master layout. Below this section are the live pages in your document.
  4. Double-click the A-Master to work on this page and add your page number placeholder. InDesignPageNumbers-03.PNG
  5. Once in here, go to your Type tool to create a text box to house your page number.
  6. Click into the text box. Click Type > Insert Special Character > Markers > Current Page Number. This will generate a letter, but don’t worry -- this is just a placeholder for the number which will generate on your live pages. Any changes to the text you make in this box (font, size, weight, etc) will apply to all the locations that use the A-Master to generate page numbers.
